Default Nissan develops paint that repairs scratches on its own!

Interesting little article. About time Nissan did something about their paint, my old Spec-V's was horrific.

Link to article

" Nissan Motor said Friday it had created a paint that repairs scratches on its own, restoring a car's surface to normal within a week.

The Japanese automaker said the paint contains a newly developed resin that can stop scratches from marking the car's outer layer.

Wear and tear due to everything from fingernails to roadside objects will disappear in one day to one week depending on the temperature and the seriousness of the scratch, Nissan said in a statement.

The "Scratch Guard Coat" paint, which protects for three years, will debut on a sports-utility vehicle which is set for a makeover, Nissan said.

The paint also helps prevent scratches in the first place. Nissan said a vehicle with the paint suffers only one-fifth of the usual abrasions caused by car-washing machines -- the main culprit for scratches.

Works for 3 years, eh? I predict some pissed off Nissan customers in 37 months.

Wow - that is awesome.

Too bad Subaru uses the antithesis of that paint - their paint scratches while just sitting in a garage.

PPG/DuPont/Sherwin/Sikkens are going to be all over this.

Like Jesse Jackson on the NFL.
